Jay-Z & Alicia Keys to Perform at the World Series

Let’s hear it for New York! Jay-Z has confirmed that he will be performing at the World Series. 

The Associated Press reports that the Yankees plan on bringing the Brooklyn rap legend along with them as they step on the field for their opening game on Wednesday [October 28] and take on defending World Series champs the Philadelphia Phillies. Hov accepted an offer to perform his New York street anthem “Empire State of Mind” alongside fellow New Yorker Alicia Keys.  

“Thank the good Lord for making me a Yankee,” Jay told the AP today. “[It's a] once-in-a-lifetime experience.” 

Jigga will also be performing the song with Keys at the American Music Awards, airing on ABC on November 22. —Brooklyne Gipson
